No pre-game interview today … we’ll look around the Pioneer League instead. The rest of the road trip – pitching coach Gil Hererdia tomorrow, pitcher Enrique Burgos on Tuesday and we’re aiming for pitcher Robby Rowland on Wednesday. Subject to change.

Other news:
– Adam Eaton is now in Mobile.  The former Osprey outfielder (2010) was promoted on Saturday and made his debut on Saturday night, 3-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI in a 6-3 win over Montgomery. In that game, Paul Goldschmidt (2009) had a triple, RBI and run scored. Jarrod Parker (2007) went five innings, scattering four hits and allowing a run to pick up the win.

– Derek Eitel (2010) is telling his friends that he has been promoted to Triple-A Reno. Eitel will be among a number of roster changes involving pitchers in recent days – including former Osprey left-hander Tom Layne (2007) being sent back down to Double-A Mobile, which took place on July 1.

Last but not least …
